What Do Users Say About EndNote for iPad App?

EndNote for iPad app has been out since the end of January. I downloaded it and tested a little; but really haven’t got a chance to use it extensively. My colleague, Jenny Pierce, just shared this link with me http://www.imedicalapps.com/2013/06/endnote-ipad-app-reference-manager/. The article provided a detailed review of the app. It states that “Overall, this is a reasonable app with lots of features. However, there are other options that are better and easier to use. The biggest pull to use this is the fact that it syncs so seamlessly with the desktop version. This is a huge benefit if EndNote for Desktop is your preferred reference manager.” Hope this review is helpful to you in the use of this app.

Here is what Jenny said about the app: “I have used Endnote on the ipad. I downloaded cites from Pubmed, ERIC and CINAHL.  Pubmed cites didn’t show the indexing terms. I don’t know why not. I like the favorites function and the fact all my groups showed up. It’s a pretty interface.” One user commented at the end of the aforementioned review article that “One thing I’ve discovered, you cannot log out of this app. Not good if multiple people are sharing an iPad.” This was confirmed by Jenny. It can cause problems for libraries that circulate iPads.

The EndNote for iPad app is the iOS version of EndNote.  It is currently available for $0.99 until July 31, 2013. The regular price will be $9.99. Please check it out at . I have not got a chance to test it yet. However, some of the customer reviews of the EndNote for iPad app on the iTunes page at http://goo.gl/JywOy are not very positive. One comment indicated that “.enl/.enlx files are not supported by EndNote for iPad”. Another one said that “the annotations don’t work, or they do, but they don’t sync”. But the same reviewer also noted that “this really is a nice app and it is very convenient to have your references on the iPad.” I would like suggest to purchase the app at this special price now and test using it if you are really eager to access your EndNote library on your iPad. You are welcome to write the comments on the app here to share your experience with other users.
